{Handmade Christmas}: Bicycle Cushion

{Handmade Christmas: Bike Cushion}

Hello there! So for a while I've been thinking about challenging myself to do a homemade Christmas. The idea being that I'd give out a limited number of gifts (just to the people I really love), but every one would be specific to that person and handmade by me.

Yesterday, I was overwhelmed by a flurry of creativity and made a whole bunch of Christmas and Halloween preparations. This is the first of my Handmade Christmas presents I'll be giving out this 
year. I won't say who it's for...

{Hand stamped bicycles galore!}

I hand stamped the fabric myself with my amazing bike stamp (I love bike motifs!) using ink that sets permanently if you heat it. It took a LOT of ironing! I might have to try out a few of these for myself in different colours. Although the construction was simple, it was quite a lot of work to hand stamp and heat set everything, but so much fun and I love the result. 

What do you think?



  1. aa!! Amazing, your bike stamp is indeed the best :D

    1. p.s. what ink did you use for this? and where did you get it? x

  2. I use Versacraft. There are a few others out there, but so far I've found Versacraft to be pretty good. Try eBay! x
